The First LUMIPro Spotlight In 2018!

*** She walks into the room her dress shimmering in the light. Her curls bounced off her shoulders as she turned towards you with a smile. ***

Hey there. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. I loved mine, but it feels great to be back behind the desk. I thought a LUMIPro spotlight would be an epic way to start 2018 so here we go!

*** Her red dress sparkles and her heels tap on the hard floor as she enters the room. She sits on the edge of the desk her long legs crossed before she addresses you. ***

LUMIPro For The Holidays!

*** She walks in carrying both an apple and pumpkin pie. She sits them on the desk then goes to a cabinet to grab plates and forks. Taking her seat she motions everyone over. ***

Hello Everyone! Feel free to grab a slice of pie and a seat. The holiday season is here, and I thought that I would share some information about LUMIPro with everyone.

What is LUMIPro?

LUMIPro is a professional grade lighting tool and yet easy to start using the day you buy it.
•    Fine control of lighting and shadows
•    Ability to pose yourself and/or all your models and groups as large as 10
•    Ability to save your scene lighting, camera, pose, and eye position and restore it on another day, even with different models
•    Shoot anywhere without rez even on no-script sims.  Great for product designers and bloggers
•    Hold 100s of your own purchased or created animation or use over 180 animations and exclusive mocaps from some of the grid’s best designers
•    Updates are always FREE for life

Since I purchased my LUMIPro in 2013 I have seen some amazing work created by various artists. I am always in awe of the work people create using LUMIPro. Let me share just a few with everyone...

These photos barely scratch the surface of what LUMIPro users have created. To see more check out the LUMIPro Flickr Group. You can also find us on Marketplace. Here are some of the reviews you will find...

I've been doing pictures for a couple of years now...this is definitely a game changer. I've used this so much since purchasing it. LOVE!

Love it!!!!

Had to get this after a friend showed me the difference in her pics before and after and was amazed! Love the how the lighting makes my photos look, and SO many different ways to use shadows, the storage space is wonderful for all my poses, no more going through a ton of folders and the free animations were an extra added bonus! A must have for frequent pic takers!

Awesome Photo Lighting System!!
Posted July 17, 2017 by CarlWeed 5 stars
LUMIPro is by far, the best lighting system in SL for photography that I have found. I have several other photo studio systems but none have the capabilities that LUMIPro has for lighting control with color, intensity, positioning, casting shadows, etc. for your photo shoots. The biggest selling feature to me is having the ability to take your lighting anywhere in SL and use it, including the no-rez areas of SL. I wanted to get out of my portrait studio but proper lighting was a problem. Now I have great lighting anywhere I shoot in SL! Other bonuses of the system are being able to control multiple models from the HUD without having to instruct them to move or change positions or anything. The system has many great built in poses (not the cheap ones either) that will get you going in no time with very professional looking photos. The eye control system is also another great tool to assist in getting those eyes just right for your shot.
If you are serious about capturing great professional photos in SL, this photo lighting system is well worth the investment. It will be the last one you will ever buy I think. The one tip I would give anyone who buys this system and does not have previous experience with earlier versions of LUMIPro is... take maybe 30 minutes or so of your time and watch all of the great video tutorials on their website. They run through many of the features, as there are many, and they will give you a much better understanding of what all you can do with this system without a lot of reading. I had never used LUMIPro before and this is what I did after I purchased it. Within no time, I was off and shooting some great photos with this system.
My hats off to the creator and developer of this system. Nice job!!

Now that you know more' why not try LUMIPro for yourself? You can try a fully functional demo at LUMIPro's World Headquarters

We hope that you have a wonderful and safe holiday season. If you have any questions or need any assistance don't hesitate to contact me, Samantha Ansar-Buscaylet (SamoanHoneyPot Resident). Until next time... Happy Shooting!

A Long Overdue LUMIPro Spotlight!

Due to the lovely thing we all know real life it has been  far too long since I reached out to you. I am excited to say I am now back full-time. One of the first things I did when I got back was check out the LUMIPro Flickr Group. So many people have posted some amazing photography! I thought what better way to celebrate my being back than a spotlight. Lets do this!

It is always so hard for me to just choose a few. Congratulations to each of you! You all did a fabulous job! Everyone will hear from me again soon. Rumor has it 2018 is on the way...

Until next time... Happy Shooting!

A Wednesday Spotlight!

*** She walks into the room, and while she neatly arranges things on the desk, six men follow behind her. The men begin putting new photos on the wall before she even turns to address you. ***

All hello everyone we are just sprucing up the gallery. Exciting things are coming to LUMIPro in the near future, but I don't want to give too much away. In the meantime, I thought what better way to make the gallery amazing than with a new spotlight.

I know I say this every time I do a LUMIPro Spotlight but I believe it. LUMIPro users are amazing. I am blown away by the photography I see every day. Congratulations to not only the people featured in this blog but to every one of you! Keep shooting and keep expressing yourself!

Until next time... Happy Shooting!
